Dancing In The Rain



I started by dripping a rainbow of watercolours down a sheet of watercolour paper. 
I snipped the dancer from a Prima adhesive border sheet and coloured them black with a marker so that they would be sihouetted against the background. (Prima also released this set in black flock, so that would work too)
I tried hand-writing the sentiment a few times with white marker on black card, but I didn't  like my writing, so I printed it out instead. Sometimes I forget to use my printer as a tool for art pieces!
Sentiment reads: Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's about learning to dance in the rain.  
I mounted the painting on black card and so it can become a card or framed as art.
